So after finishing my project on using Centrify AD software in an Multi-OS environment, there where a couple of things that i found smart using the Centrify solution, and some drawbacks…
To fully use the software, all UNIX based machines needs to have ssh enabled. The control software cannot be pushed out from the AD machine, if ssh is disabled.
If there is a local user on the machine, identically named as one in the AD. You can only login as the local user.
The white papers published by Centrify can be a bit lacking in information regarding best practice for installing on the main AD.
The program suits are very varied, and it can take some time finding the correct program to install.
Their free express software works very good, but is lacking in what functionality is enabled.
I found that uninstalling the software in ubuntu, could case some problems.
